I have two server 2008 R2 servers doing namespace with replication between them.  Both are in separate AD sites.

The replication and namespace was working without issue until yesterday.  Server A is fine and works without issue.  Server B is reporting an "error ID: 87 and 4004".  The folders on Server B are inaccessible.  The original replicated folders (Shared, home, accounting) look like shortcut icons and in the same directory there are folders containing the data that have been named like "DFS.bac700da-1b77-4231-be27-56e4ead52068Shared".  The system won't let me rename them.

If anybody can help me with this issue that would be great.
